  • Great location
  • Close to Museum Campus and theater district


  • Lobby can be a bit dark, and its decor a bit too ornate

Fodor's Review

The lobby of this classic hotel has gold-trimmed walls, a gold sofa, and modern flower arrangements that make it an unusual mix of old and new; the guest rooms are simple and elegant, with enough flair to feel updated yet still give a sense of the past. Property perks include an in-house Starbucks and the popular Mercat a la Planxa tapas restaurant and bar. Ask about the hotel's storied past; presidents as well as mob bosses have stayed here.
